Los Angeles based Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. offers a 2-panel Drug Test for Methamphetamine (MET) and Marijuana (THC) drugs. This multi drug test kit is designed for qualitative determination of drug substances in human urine specimen. When you are seeking dependable drug testing kits for your lab, count on our business to provide you with great options and other quality rapid diagnostic tests.
The two panel drug test- Methamphetamine and Marijuana Drug Testing device is based on the principle of specific immunochemical reaction between antibodies and antigens to analyze particular compounds in human urine specimen. The assay relies on the competition for binding antibody between drug conjugate and free drug which may be present in the urine specimen being tested. When the Methamphetamine or Marijuana drug is present in the urine specimen, it competes with drug conjugate for the limited amount of antibody-dye conjugate. When the amount of the methamphetamine or marijuana drug is equal or more than the cut-off, it will prevent the binding of drug conjugate to the antibody. Therefore, a positive urine specimen on the 2-panel drug test - Methamphetamine and Marijuana Drug Test will not show a colored band on the test line zone, indicating a positive result, while the presence of a colored band indicates a negative result. A control line is present in the test window to work as procedural control. This colored band should always appear on the control line zone if the 2-panel drug test methamphetamine and marijuana drug testing device is stored in good condition and the 2 panel drug test - methamphetamine and marijuana drug test is performed appropriately.
The Methamphetamine drug (MET) is the most popular synthetic derivative of the amphetamines. The methamphetamine drug is a potent sympathomimetic agent with therapeutic applications. Acute large doses of the methamphetamine drug lead to enhanced stimulation of the central nervous system and induce euphoria, alertness, reduced appetite, and a sense of increased energy and power. More acute response to the methamphetamine drug produces anxiety, paranoia, psychotic behavior, and cardiac dysrhythmias. The methamphetamine drug is excreted in the urine as amphetamine and oxized and deaminated derivatives. However, 10-40% of the methamphetamine drug is excreted unchanged. The methamphetamine drug is generally detectable in the urine for 3 to 5 days after use.
The agents of the Marijuana Drug (THC) that cause various biological effects in humans are called cannabinoid. Cannabinoid is a central nervous stimulant that alters mood and sensory perceptions, produces loss of coordination, impairs short term memory, and produces symptoms of anxiety, paranoia, depression, confusion, hallucination, and increased heart rate. Large doses of cannabinoid could cause the development of tolerances and physiological dependency and lead to abuse. A tolerance to the cardiac and psychotropic effects of the marijuana drug can occur and withdrawal syndrome produces restlessness, insomnia, anorexia and nausea. ␣9-THC is the primary active ingredient in cannabinoids. The main metabolite excreted in the urine is 11-nor-␣9-THC-9-COOH, which are found within hours of exposure and remain detectable in the urine for 3-10 days after smoking.
The multi drug test kit Methamphetamine (MET) and Marijuana (THC) Drug Test provides only a preliminary analytical test result. A more specific alternative chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry (GC/MS) has been established as the preferred confirmatory method by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any drug of abuse test result, particularly when preliminary positive results are indicated.
The optional built-in Adulteration Test is for validation of urine specimen's integrity and must not be used for In Vitro diagnostic use. The cutoff level for this 2-panel drug test - Methamphetamine (MET) and Marijuana (THC) Drug Test is 1000 ng/ml of (+) methamphetamine and 50 ng/ml of 11-nor-D9-THC-9-COOH.
